Imagine that you need to get an apple that is on top of a very big mountain. Legend lol many have said that if you manage to get hold of the apple your life will be all set and you will live happily ever after. Then, you decided to follow the legend and start your own journey with thousands of youngsters from err all over the world. As you are climbing the mountain, you finally saw the tree that bears the legendary apple that can be the key to your happiness. The tree is just right in front of your eyes but you found yourself pondering as the path to the tree is split into two.

One is long but safe.

Another one is short but dangerous.

And you are like damn not this shit again. You have worked so hard and you started to think about all the sacrifices that you had made just to get some damn apple.

What would you do?

In life, we will encounter a lot of similar situation where decisions are needed to make and we wonder whether our decisions are right or wrong. As the saying goes there is no right or wrong in making choices. Unless you are debating whether to rob a bank or to donate to charity, it is no brainer that robbing a bank or something equivalent to it will earn you a place in jail.

Or maybe not. *seems like the law is not applicable to the people with wealth and power *

So how do you ensure that the choices you made are the right one?

Newsflash: You just don’t. You have to MAKE it the RIGHT one.

You will never know for sure that the path that you have taken is right. But if you listen, to your heart and consider everything; carefully research the pros and the cons I am sure you will not regret it.

Screwing up is hardly a major mistake. Sometimes your wrong choices bring you to the right places.

  1. As we grow older … lot of choices and decision need to make . Not all choices give a good decision. When the choices turn up to be a bad decision , that's why we need to turn back to the Al-Mighty seek for help. =)

    Nice sharing dear .

    Btw , rasya study di japan ye?

  2. Takde pilihan yang kita buat itu salah *read this somewhere* and hello saya telah buat pilihan untuk ke blog awak dan x nyesal, apa stylo sgt blog nii?

  3. Believe me, it's taken me a long time to think about sacrifice and choices. Only I can make the choices and those choices affect not only me but everyone too. Too often in my life I've done only things for myself but knowing and finally figuring out, I would rather take the long and safe way around.

    How do I know it's right? The thing is you don't. It's not possible to know all of the outcomes even though we can guess. It's what we feel in our hearts and allows us to make our choices. Choices in of themselves aren't good or bad, they simply are, and because of the duality we human beings put on things, we don't know if good or bad "choices" can hurt or help us. You'd be surprised at the consequences of some good or bad "choices" and how not everything is equal. There is no equivalent exchange and sometimes the bad people get away with choices that lead to harm and sometimes the good so called choices don't always equal up to helping.

    It really depends on the context of the situation and what we want to do with those choices that determine who we are and what kind of person we will become.

  4. Where we are right now are the consequences of our choices. Well for me, whichever path works because I do believe that your success will depend on how you act on a given situation 🙂 This post made me think about life haha 🙂 Have a great day!

  5. Yes. Sometimes I do feel anxious bout some decisions i've made espescially those real-life-decisions. This is what people like me is looking for, being convinced that everything is gonna be alright by those words "make it right". Mybe you're right 😉

    Not too late to wish, salam aidilfitri maaf zahir batin! Hehe 😀

  6. Turn to Allah and seek His perfect help & guidance..
    "If any one of you is concerned about a decision he has to make, then let him pray two rak’ahs ..istikharah" then reciting the doa, thinking about the situation you want to be advised about. If you’re still in doubt, you can repeat.
    "Put your trust in Allâh, certainly, Allâh loves those who put their trust (in Him)."
    [Surah Surah Al-Imran Ayah 159]
